Well, I learned something new tonight. The gaskets on the intake boot of the 450 K3/4 do not come off easy. Not a problem I think, I'll just take this here razor and scrape it off like I've always done in the past. The problem is, I've never done a 450 intake boot before. It turns out the metal ring on the outside of the boot that mounts to the motor is the only part that is metal. The rest of the mounting flange is rubber.

Heed this warning, when you take a razor knife and try to scrape/cut off the gasket you will tear up the rubber boot. :eek:

This innocent mistake has now cost me an intake manifold.

Does anyone happen to have an extra?

Chunks of rubber are missing on the left one.
